Can you put a contract SIM in a SIM free phone?

Post by Great Leader Sprucenuce on Tue Mar 04, 2014 6:02 pm

Ok i stupidly threw my remote control the other day and it hit my phone screen which has since got many cracks Sad

I was wondering could i buy a sim free phone and use my broken phone's sim until my contract runs its course?

http://www.tesco.com/direct/sim-free-unlocked-sony-xperia-e-black/713-4371.prd?pageLevel=&skuId=713-4371

Something like this for example? not sure what phone i'm gonna get just using that as an example.

Spoiler:
INB4 Lex or Tom comes into the thread and says lets all go to Tesco's where Mole buys his best clothes  Rolling Eyes  ( and phones it would seem)

You might be better off taking it to a phone repair store and seeing how much it will cost to replace the screen.

Buy the phone, try the sim and if it doesn't work refund it? I'd say 75% it should work. hmm

If you get a sim free phone and put in a SIM card with service on it then you are fine.

And sim-free do you mean unlocked? I mean pop in any gsm SIM card in a gsm phone and it will work. At least in my experience.

Yeah Falcao.

In any case i have found out as long as the provider is the same ( in my case O2) it works so i'm gonna go ahead and do that.

Thanks for your replies Thumbs up

The real question is what was shown on TV that caused Mole to throw his remote in anger?

Did a pundit come to the conclusion that Suarez is better than Benzema?

My sources say it might have been due to this pic popping up on BBC.
